Egypt, (this link will take you to Trip Adviser for you to set up your own journeys to Egypt with your parents or classmates) being a Muslim country, is naturally conservative (not like the Gulf States or Saudi Arabia) but the average person is careful in what they wear, especially ladies.

For men it is not really an issue – normal trousers and shirt or T-shirt are fine – but in Cairo it would not be acceptable to wear short shorts or a tank tops/sleeveless tops.

Remember, you are guests in a foreign country.  We must follow their rules and traditions.
